Prodigal: A Second Chance Romance by Pippa Prince

A Broken Heart…

After all these years, I’m still the girl with a hopeless crush on the town bad boy.

Zack Carpenter has returned… to make me his.

But times have changed. I’m a little older and a lot wiser. I won’t come running every time he flashes that sexy smile.

Zack burned me once – I won’t let him burn me twice. Yet all it takes is his touch and I’m in over my head.

Again.

A Second Chance…

I left Shiloh to slay my demons, to protect Liz the only way I knew how.

She’s all I’ve ever wanted. The girl I couldn’t forget. I’ve returned to Shiloh a changed man and I’m here to win her back.

Liz McAllister was the stuff of fantasy ten years ago. Now, despite the fragile look in her eyes, she’s a thousand times more beautiful. Curvy, sexy, she’s fast becoming my obsession.

I won’t rest until she’s mine once more.

*Note: PRODIGAL is a standalone novel with no cheating, no cliffhanger, and a guaranteed HEA. Intended for mature audiences only.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I grew up in a small town, attended church, heard the stories in Sunday School. Pretty standard midwestern US youth. The story of the prodigal son always interested me — he took his inheritance and squandered it, abominably. When he returned home, utterly penniless, his father welcomed him with open arms and a party. The important part wasn't the money — the important part was family. Of course, in PRODIGAL, 'family' means the hero and heroine, but the moral is the same.

Trick Play by Jessica Kelly

Trick-Play-Cover-JPEGRebecca Stone is smart and driven. She has dreamed of being a sports reporter for her entire life, and now that she has landed her very first job at a TV station in tiny Curtinville, Texas, her dream is starting to become a reality.

The only problem? Curtinville may be small in size, but it’s home to plenty of big secrets.

It doesn’t take long for Rebecca to figure out that money, power, and greed are the names of the game here. Everything that the beloved Curtinville Cats do on the football field is overshadowed by the dirty deals that are going on behind the scenes. The Cats aren’t the only ones who are good at drawing up trick plays. Some of the biggest names in town play dirty tricks every single day.

Rebecca arrives in Curtinville believing that hard work is the key to earning respect and building a successful career. She’s so serious about her work that she refuses to give in to her feelings for the steamy ex-quarterback — even though he has her squarely in his sights. But as she soon learns, doing the right thing doesn’t always pay off. In fact, in Curtinville, it can be the easiest way to land in some serious hot water.

How far will Curtinville’s elite go to keep their secrets hidden?

How many consequences will Rebecca suffer for exposing the truth?

Will all of those trick plays crush her dreams forever?

Targeted Audience: 21+

Author Bio:
Author. Dreamer. Entrepreneur.

That’s how Jessica Kelly describes herself. Just like the main character in her first book, Trick Play, Jessica believes that hard work is the key to success. Luckily, though, creating new characters and new plot twists doesn’t feel like work to her! Jessica has always had a passion for writing, and she has dreamed of becoming a successful author for more years than she can count.

So what about the “Entrepreneur” part?

That proves just how serious Jessica is about turning her dream into reality. Her goal isn’t to write a book or two in her spare time. Instead, she’s focused on building a successful writing career from the ground up. She’s not content to JUST have a dream. She’s willing to do whatever it takes to make it come true.

Jessica began living the dream the moment she started writing Trick Play. When she’s not dreaming up new story ideas, this native Floridian can be found spending quality time with friends and family, soaking up the sun on the beach, and — of course — reading.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I’ve always dreamed of being a fiction writer. Combining someone as strong as Rebecca with football (a sport I love!) and a hunky love interest seemed like the perfect fit!

Author Bio:
I’m a grandma who reads and writes smut. I’m also a daughter, sister, mother, aunt, grandmother and author. I live in Florida with my daughter and her family, and share my woman cave with four furry felines. Their main goal in life is getting as much cat hair onto everything that they can. And they’re doing a wonderful job of it.

Writing is my passion. For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be one. However, I didn’t seek publication until my family encouraged me. My first book under my real name, Debbie Wallace, was on the publisher’s bestsellers list for two consecutive months.

I love hearing from readers!

Too many voices in my head, something had to give. So I got rid of a couple of them by letting them escape into a book.
